I have a Jinhao that came with a purchase and the nib was swapped out —
Lovely writer with the JOWO nib.
Filled it with Super5 Darmstadt, which has never had its own pen.
It is now my always-gotta-have-it pen!
About gratitude and depression.
ALWAYS, especially when you feel you are stepping into depression, take five morning noon and night and give thanks.
I can always find two things to be thankful for, no matter what:
The cats and their antics.
Sometimes these become blanks for my journal or gratitude thoughts that day.
This day, thankful for the tulips (spring) and my 42-year-old white Pottery Barn vase,
Back when they first started… a gift from my then boyfriend.
Thanks for my freebie Jinhao, for having inks…
Thanks for the black crazed cat with his blue spring in mouth
putting his claws in me, demanding play.
Thankful to have a way to share my art, and for the community.
Now, to work….
“Memory is more indelible than ink.”
Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
